Oh the joys of parenthood... Sorry

Good thing you made progress. I'm about to go get to it.

GoldenSahara00 Yeah nice weather is coming. Aka today and tomorrow are work days

BLK00TJ Aye,.. but the weather is starting to turn now I think. In not too much time I'll complain about wrenching in the heat.

Pink_Percy I'm working on the shale driveway too! I like when the jack stands sink into the dirt and I lose bolts and sockets because they blend in with the rocks. Good stuff

Patrick H I have a garage. Or, I can use the 3 bay shop I work at..
But that doesn't mean I know what I'm talking about.

Anyone want to know how to build a half a...ed rig? Help me in my driveway and bring beer!

You can still multiply my wallet by any positive number too.
By garage I mean an unheated half insulated garage that I don't own, and yes the jeep still gets worked on in the driveway, I can work on the axle inside though with a space heater at my feet Basically I can just store my tools and axle in it... for now

what a glorious life.

but seriously, just make sure you bumpstop it right and you won't hurt anything. It wouldn't help to add some more lift or clearance but you got what you got now. Make it work.

Dieselholic Just get the 33s and if they rub just cut it off. Eventually there will be nothing to rub on haha
03-08-2013 07:33 PM
Patrick H I'm just an asshole who doesn't want to help anyone.
03-08-2013 07:32 PM
getalildirty Yeah patrick i wasnt trying to be a dick before.. I actually appreciated you telling me that. Haha

Yes, I was being a smartass. Sorry.

Patrick H He asked why they sat lower in the front, and I answered. He even thanked me.
I thought that was being helpful.

getalildirty Yeah golden sahara i think you nailed it. All i asked for was pictures hahah

GoldenSahara00 Let me do some math for you guys.

31s on stock height is typically accepted as the max tire size, right?

You move to 33s, adding 2 inches of tire, 1 inch above and below the axle center line.

You add a 1.25 inch body lift, gaining 1.25 inches of clearance above the tire.

1.25-1=+.25

So with that setup you have a quarter inch more room for travel than before.

The only reason it will chew up fenders is if the suspension is not bump stopped correctly or the backspacing on the wheels is incorrect (putting the tire into the flare).

It is possible to run skinny 33s with this small amount of lift. He also didn't specify stock fenders, were just assuming that's what he has.

This forum is full of negative people with cookie cutter minds and a severe lack of desire to help others.

I don't think I have read a single helpful post in 2 pages of this thread, and certainly very little that was relevant to the OP's request.
03-08-2013 04:51 PM
getalildirty Yeah i got my zone 1.25" lift for $110 including shipping.
03-08-2013 04:46 PM
Mulvihill64 Do a 2" coil spacer lift, combined with a 1.25 bl and a 1" Mml, and you will be good to run 33's. you can probably find all of this for $250 if u look around
03-08-2013 04:43 PM
PedroJr So what option u guys think I should go with? Im mot ready to do a full lift yet
03-08-2013 04:42 PM
PedroJr Ok well I guess that answer ur ?.
